Creamy, light, citrusy, easy – what more could you ask for? This citrus mango sauce is really versatile. It works as both a dressing or a sauce and last five days in the fridge, so make it ahead to jazz up a simple lunch or dinner. See notes on how to use it at the end of this post.
Too Good Not to Highlight
Although I published this recipe a few days ago as part of the lobster salad post, it’s too good not to highlight on its own. I wanted to post it separately so it did not get lost in the archives.
Dressing or Sauce
The inspiration for this recipe came from a lobster salad we enjoyed at the Montage resort in Laguna Beach. The restaurant was nice enough to tell me what was in it so I took notes and came up with my own recipe. While I used for the lobster salad recipe (photo above), I quickly discovered that it works great over grilled fish, shrimp, boneless, and skinless chicken breasts. I even used it for this grilled scallops wrapped in Prosciutto recipe. Creamy citrus mango sauce lasts for five days in the fridge so extra does not go to waste.
